"The captain thought you're hot stuff." "What did he say just as w docked. When the men laughed? Lilly told her the proverb. "H who travels the wrong way travels the road two times." "Where'd you learn Spanish?" "In L.A. I liked the crack th guy on the dock made. *Four bird in the hand are better than a bun dred dying/ So we're Tour birds in you know whose hand."

And I know a good one." fJEA COSGROVE undressed quickly, piled her clothes neat- y, slipped on the thin robe and pulled it tight around her waist. "How'd you happen to come here?" Lilly called. Bea Cosgrove stopped brushing ler hair. She stared at her reflection without seeing it. She said, "I taught school for 20 years. I eouldnt stand it any more. Like you, I was lonely. So I joined the club and here I'am." Mrs. Warren splashed. "I never lad much education myself. What [ know I found out the hard way I guest I'm dumb, but I'd never picked you for a schoolteacher." "Why not?" "I dunno. The way you carry yourself maybe. Or maybe b« cause you seem hard—in a soft sort of way.

But remember we hange off on these jobs. There'll ome •.tame." "Mayb« yo« got something here." Well, no harm trying." Lily did a quick but thoroughly ef- cient job on the bath. "You know, think maybe we'll get along. 1 ion't have much use for anyone who lets people impose." * • * [JEA COSGROVE awoke from troubled sleep and a dream she refused to remember. She sat up, n the quiet, above the sound of ->illy|s breathing, she heard the muffled pad of footsteps. A man'a ootsleps, slow, careful, * rising closer. They came level, paused, went on upward. Her body waa rigid, bathed in perspiration. In the dark, orienta- .ion was difficult. And Henry Harding had stalked through tormented dreams before. Suddenly she knew. The bedroom wall formed a side of the lower. There was a stairway inside. Harding, the man of flesh and blood, had listened and walked past. She lay back, fought to relax, and finally slept again. The clothe* she had placed so neatly were disarranged. Lilly Warren stood beside them, holding up Bea's girdle for closer inspection. *'Hey, M Mrs, Warren called, "you going to sleep all day?" Bea ?at up, yawned. "Good morning." M Ii it? I didn't know how you'd feel after the way you were yipping and carrying on in the night. About what you'd done to some guy named Jim."
